20th philippine international hot air balloon fiesta

Posted on: March 28, 2016


went to this year’s hot air balloon fiesta, and i had to battle hordes of zombies err… the lines were so terrible (as compared to the previous years’) i’d probably get trampled on before my brains get eaten in the event of a zombie apocalypse, hahaha! anyhoo i found a spot near the fence, laid my trusty old lagu blanket and sat there until the program started.


paragliders carried the philippine flag and there was a balloon that’s made to look like our flag (which is owned by an american per the commentators) which is coincidentally the hare balloon for the day and they made that one go up first… i gave it a small salute.


they set off one balloon after another, some i’ve already seen, and some are new, but what stood out to me was the little boy and little girl balloons, it was valentine’s day that day and those balloons were sort of going out on a date, i think. haha.


there were lots of vendors during the fest, there were fast food but i geared towards the sellers that sold, well, home-cooked style-ish.


i settled for good old tocino though and i had the egg removed since i’m not the biggest egg fan but the seller was so kind she gave me vegetables instead. also, this came with the softest rice ever, just the way i like it! i bought sago too.


i roamed around after eating all that rice and there are always still a lot to see… you can get some toys around the bazaars, ogle warplanes, buy souvenirs, evade obstacles… lol. i bought a few stuff for pasalubong and then our tour group headed home by ten am. i had fun yo!

yun lang.
